Analysis / Bias
In review, Great American Politics fully disclaims they are a conservative website and the articles published reflect that. News articles tend to utilize sensational emotionally loaded headlines such as this: Joe Biden Says Despicable Things About America While Speaking In Europe and Mexico Governor Has Strong Message For Migrants; Leftists Will Hate This. Sourcing for articles comes from a wide variety of right leaning sources such as Fox News and the Daily Caller, and questionable sources such as The Blaze and the Gateway Pundit, both of which have poor track records with fact checkers. In general, Great American Politics takes a news story from a known media source and editorializes, it to fit a conservative narrative. All stories on this website favor the right and denigrate the left.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check by IFCN fact checkers.
Overall, we rate Great American Politics borderline extreme right biased, based on story selection that always favors the right and use of loaded emotional language that is sensational in nature. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting based on the use of sources that have failed numerous fact checks. (D. Van Zandt 2/21/2019)
